Since 1996, when PokƩmon debuted, I have not once wondered whether or not a Pikachu can fart. Then I watched the latest Detective Pikachu trailer.

The film is the first live-action Hollywood adaptation of the world of PokƩmon, fart jokes and all. Is this movie canon?

Iā€™m not anti-fart joke! Not at all.

This trailer ainā€™t George Carlin, sure, but at least we now know PokĆ©mon can fart. I guess!
